More about the artist:
Gary was a native of Illinois, and was raised in the small rural community of Woodstock. His talents and interests led him to pursue formal art training at Whitewater State University in Wisconsin. He also studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, and at the John Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida.
For a time, Reed worked as a commercial artist, but soon found this field too limiting and restrictive. He moved to Hawaii, and since 1971 has devoted full-time to his own paintings and exhibitions.
Gary said of his art: "What I paint is right out in the open - no hidden meanings, no abstractions. I can best say what I want to say with realistic art." The artist paints reality objectively, but not as if totally detached from that reality. His work is painted empathetically, not sentimentally. Detail is reflected, rather than accentuated, by muted natural colors using soft yet deliberate brush strokes.
His paintings are concerned with every day themes, but they are not ordinary; they transcend the commonplace. Reed's paintings sometimes seem to have been done at another time and place - sort of remembering, yet they are of the present and future as well. They capture the spirit of all times, peoples and places - universal and timeless
Gary has had numerous one-man shows in Honolulu, other parts of Hawaii, and on the US mainland. His paintings are represented in private and corporate art collections throughout the world.
Gary Reed's work transcends the commonplace while capturing the spirit of all people and places - universal and timeless. Gary's total body of work is substantial. He has concentrated on Hawaiian scenes for the past quarter-century and, despite his lack of speed, his commitment to painting several hours every day has paid off. Much of his non-painting time is spent exploring new places to paint and he is constantly traversing his way up old dirt roads in search of fresh scenes. However, much of what he finds is right out in the open.
"My life in a rural setting and my paintings - mostly of country landscapes - have a direct connection. I am drawn to open spaces and love the lush vegetation of Hawaii. My hobbies are collecting palms and gardening, they have a tremendous effect on my work and spirit.
"I like to paint slowly and meticulously because I have a vision of the scene in my head and it includes all the details. When I was just beginning, I experimented with many styles and subjects, but kept returning to realism and landscapes. That is when I realized who I am."
